These magic moments

Magic moments

Melissa is a magical gown newly released by Appear. This full skirted ball gown with gathered bodice features a cluster of flowers draping over your shoulder and scattered over the skirt. It’s beautiful and fits perfectly, however my favorite feature is the hud. In the collage below I used Nam’s Optimal  skin & prim to show off some of the options. You have the ability to color the dress and flowers separately , you can select from light or dark satin or a floral sequin for the gown. You can also select the flower color after the gown color allowing you to select a contrasting color or fabric.

I wanted to share a close up of the hud , as well as the menus already mentioned there is the colorize option. You can chose to color : all, flower, skirt or top, and based on the original satin color you can create a countless array of colors by adjusting via the palette.

You may have noticed the lovely poinsettia detailed jewelry I am wearing, as an elite set from Zuri Rayna Jewelry.  The Santa Baby v3 allows you to select from menus for the pearls, metals and leaves of the poinsettia. As you can see it gives you the opportunity to create a unique set to match or contrast your outfit.

:: Twas The Month Before Christmas ::


I love this poem created by one of the VIPs at Carries, I thought that sharing it would bring a smile to many – and remind anyone not yet in Carries VIP group that this is a time of year that you do not want to miss ! Hurry and join the group lingerie addicts, tomorrow the first door opens and there is a 50% discount off 2 outfits , but only on the day of release (after that VIPs can get them at 25% discount). Carrie certainly knows how to spread Christmas cheer.

Edit; I may be wrong.. the first door might already be open.. runs to Carries to take a look!

Carries Christmas villiage 2015 final

Below is a WONDERFUL Poem written by one of our VIP members! We had to share with everyone! Thanks so much Kativa!

‘Twas the month of white Christmas and all through the land,
Carrie and her elves were out giving a hand,
The houses were decorated with such loving care,
In hopes the VIPs would soon be there to share,

The VIPs anxiously waited to see what Carrie had in store,
As she and her elves would soon open the door.

I had picked up some outfits and tried them all on,
In the mid of the night just before dawn,
There was no one in sight, no noise or clatter,
I wandered the streets to see what was the matter.

I peeked in the windows to check on the stash,
I closed up the shutters and pulled down the sash,
The land was…

His tenderness

Something New - props n poses, His Tenderness

Although the Thanksgiving leftovers may still be in the fridge and the Black Friday sales may still be available ( some will run until the end of the weekend).. but that doesn’t mean you can’t start looking ahead to Christmas. My friend Helly has a beautiful tree in his home so I thought this would be the perfect spot for a photo opportunity.

This lovely couple pose titled His Tenderness is available at Something New – props n poses, and is a lovely pose for your Christmas photo or any other occasion you want to capture a caring moment .

Take me as I am..

There is a time and place for change but not when it feels it is being forced upon you. Sometimes it can be a subtle inference that you should or could change your avi appearance or the way you do something. Other times it is an up front in your face telling you that it ” would be better” for things to look or be different. Now while I am all for reflection and upgrading or improving when the time feels right, but unsolicited suggestions end up feeling like criticisms rather than helpful.

Blueberry clothing

These photos were taken last week when I was in a huge photography mood. I went exploring in a relaxed jeans and top , both from Blueberry. Speaking of Blueberry there is currently a “12 Days of Christmas” Marketplace special in which Blueberry is taking place, so there are some awesome specials MP only.

The mysterious Mrs C

EMO-tions hair @ Cosmopolitan room

You may remember last month I shared a post featuring the lovely lingerie set Mrs C in Orange, which was available as a Halloween hunt at Carries Lingerie. Well I thought it was time to share this lovely lady in another color, so may I present Mrs C Fuchsia.

As mentioned previously this set includes system layers and an omega applier hud which you now can use with the Slink body as long as you have picked up the LoveNLust Slink /Omega relay hud. Last time I left off the overskirt it is on..while I omitted the gloves, I felt it showed off my  Whimsy jewelry set from [MUSE] a little better. There are also boots that have been released to wear with Mrs C, but I chose to wear different ones for a very good reason- read on to solve the mystery.
Mrs C lingerie, CB

This time I chose to showcase this lovely set on the newer Slink mesh body Hourglass. I have used the exact same shape as I always use so as you may notice there are definitely more curves especially in the thigh , hip and bottom area of the body. Perhaps I should add a little more body fat or thicken up my arms for this mesh body , I love a curvier avi so it is great see some clothing and footwear being released in specific Hourglass sizing. For example my fantastic Zadar boots from Hucci, although not available in single packs the color fatpack is great value and so versatile that I’ve already worn these boots with several different outfits.

Whimsy set, [MUSE] with CB lingerie

My slightly tousled hair is another great buy, this you can find at the current round of Cosmopolitan Room. This style from EMO-tions includes several pieces that you add to give you volume and flexi, I love the soft tendrils framing the face and caressing the shoulders.

Before I drop down to the details I want to share some very special news .. it’s almost 1st December! Only a few days until Carries Lingerie begins their Christmas specials, already the VIP area is all decorated and last year’s Christmas outfits are available .. with the option to purchase the appliers separately if you already have the set. The Christmas releases at Carries are always very exciting and on the release date they are each significantly reduced and as this year there are two releases each day I suggest you don’t waste time. Rush to Carries Lingerie to join the VIP group today and that way you won’t miss any of these fantastic deals. There is a cost to join the group but if you enjoy classy sexy lingerie this is one group you will want to be in.

It’s not what it looks like

It's not what it looks like

A few days ago I blogged about a lovely Marquise ring from Zuri Rayna Jewelry ( I had to giggle over one friend’s comment that she thought it was a genuine engagement announcement. So I am giving advance warning that it’s not what it looks – if you are thinking this is a bridal picture, it’s not.

Zuri Rayna Jewelry- LeVian ring and Sari sets

It is however another gorgeous wedding ring from Zuri Rayna. The LeVian ring set includes wedding duo as pictured as well as an engagement ring. I decided not to show off the proposal pose box as I didn’t want to cause more confusion.

Before I finish up I want to mention this gorgeous setting where I took my photos today. I was invited to take a tour around the Copperfield Estate & Winery and was impressed with the wonderful environment .  When you arrive at the dock you can choose to take a sleigh ride around the sim, this is a smooth running ride that takes you all around the public accessible areas. From the vines, criss-crossing the iced over river to the hills, over bridges into a walled garden before stopping at an outdoor dance area.

I have spoken with the owners and found out that they re-decorate seasonally so I will be sure to be returning to take photos here many times. Also while there be sure to take a close look at the vineyard where you can pick up some complimentary wine from this lovely vineyard ( or purchase barrels via the MP) (SLurl will be below the details).

It’s My party at My Attic

It's my party

It’s my party and I will .. dress as I want to, dance how I want to and party like I want to! Today’s photos have a range of items that you can find at the just opened November round of My Attic – which has the theme ” It’s my party”.

Party Girl poses, Ma Vie @ My Attic Nov

First of all I want to talk about my fun tulle trimmed dress from The Annex. It has gorgeous textures and comes in a range of different color pairings, don’t forget that items at My Attic are priced at 95L while at the event. I do want to mention that I picked out the Ma Vie poses there too , love the movement conveyed but unfortunately a couple of the poses didn’t treat the dress as well – in these first two pictures the dress looks a little roughed up.. it’s not ! It is a polished silky piece of party-wear and though I don’t usually pick out clothes with bows I loved the fun of this dress.

Roberta, EMO-tions , My Attic Nov

The class continues with my gorgeous updo from EMO-tions which you can get.. you guessed it.. at My Party.. uh no I mean My Attic. Roberta comes with the  matching collar ( but not the lower strand of pearls), you can however find those with the pearls twined around my arm at the mainstore of EMO-tions as part of the Florielle set.

collage Nov my atticI wanted to finish with a couple close ups, my skin from YS & YS Beatrix is available as appliers for Catwa, Lelutka or Logo in three different tones. Each applier includes two makeup options so basically two looks for your mesh head for 95L.. what a steal! I picked up my shoes there too the Ciao shoes from Bushu are for wearing with your Slink high feet and are available in 12 colors.  SO many choices.. but it will all help you prepare to party at bargain prices! As long as you remember to head along to My Attic before 30th November, SLurl included below.

You leave me restless

PurpleMoon , Exile, Reign

There is something about the change of seasons, summer into fall, fall into winter that bring to the surface a certain restlessness. Perhaps with the end of warmer days we start to think ahead , the falling leaves bringing to mind the shaking off of past regrets and discarding old habits . Whilst the white wintery landscape brings us a blank canvas to start and prepare anew for spring when we will burst forth into life with a renewed vigor like a crocus bulb breaking through the cold crust of snow that covers the land.

You leave me restless

A timely reminder that not all change is bad and that not all change is sudden . It can be a so slow evolution , an unfolding of new tendrils seeking out new paths, learning new ways and gaining confidence in our ability to adapt and grow. Whether it be RL or SL to live without reflection and questioning about our own happiness and satisfaction, we will stagnate.If we accept what has always been without striving for what our hearts truly desire can we truly say we are living to our full potential.

Season’s change and so can we.. if we wish to.

Entice me

Enticed to relax

I love hearing about free items in SL, who doesn’t enjoy getting something for free ..or even almost free.  Hunts, group gifts, freebies on marketplace, there are lots of opportunities to get your hands on some great items for next to nothing. My latest freebie “thrill is this super cute sundress from Entice.  I stumbled across a Facebook based campaign, simply like the page and then send your name to the person who posted it. Now this was a 24 hours only offer BUT I wanted to mention it as one of the ways that Entice is making great clothing available for free .. or next to nothing.

Entice me dress, recent FB gift

This dress comes with the usual standard sizes XXS through to L and a texture change hud with three patterns. A cute function is that you can change the bottom ruffle part of the dress to be a different texture from the top if you like.

Enticed to explore

This dress fits so well and is such a super cute shape with a slightly higher hemline at the back. I was so happy with this dress I raced over to take a look at what else is in store at Entice, and sure enough another freebie.. group gift this time.

DeLa Hair and Deesses skin

I decided to head out and about for taking this photos , and stumbled upon a gem of a location. Softly  falling leaves from fall toned trees, the gentle melody of flowing streams enhanced by beautiful piano music meandering paths taking you over bridges , up hills to explore a myriad of photo spots or relaxing hideaways. Truly enticing I couldn’t resist lingering after taking my photos, I am already thinking about a return visit.
